The Scientific Programmer's Toolkit: Turbo Pascal Edition presents a complete software environment for anyone writing programs in mathematical, engineering, or science areas. This toolkit package is designed for use with Turbo Pascal, the de facto standard Pascal system for PC and compatible machines.
The book and its software provides an integrated software library of programming tools. The programs and routines fall into three categories: graphical, mathematical, and utilities. Routines are further subdivided into three levels that reflect the experience of the user. For graphics and text handling routines there is also a Level 0, which provides an interface to the machine operating system. By using hierarchically structured routines, the clearly written text, and a wide range of example programs, software users can construct a user-friendly interface with minimal effort. The levels structure makes it easy for newcomers to use the Toolkit, and with growing experience, users can achieve more elaborate effects.
The Scientific Programmer's Toolkit will be useful to consultants, researchers, and students in any quantitative profession or science, in private or public sector research establishments, or in secondary and higher education.
